    It died before I tried it, but I thought maybe it could be used for Mojito?

    Where is the evidence of your amazing mystical lavender bush Paula?

    Tomorrow, I promise
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Ok, here is my lavender hedge - given this is with the winter cutback, and the plants are 2.5 times this during the summer ..... Of course it does cause problems getting to the car when the bees are enjoying the lavender

    We didn't plant a garden last year because of the move, but I'm excited to help out this year now we're "back on the farm". My mom has the tomatoes, chiles, and a lot of the greens taken care of. It's harder for her to manage much else. I always get so excited this time of year as the seed catalogs come and we start to get outside more. The past few years, we were able to grow almost all the veg we needed and froze, canned, and dried for storage.

    I'm not. I'd grown carrots and tomatoes in tubs before but just for one year I got into it and grew all the stuff I listed. I just have the strawberry plants left in pots that I occasionally pull the weeds out of but that's it now. I can kind of see the appeal of gardening, I quite like the manual labour, digging holes and things like that, but actually growing stuff now doesn't particularly interest me any more.

    Does your dad lie gardening, maybe you could do the manual labour and he could plant the plants and look after them ?

    If it's something you enjoy maybe you could use it to help others?

    I'm not growing any fruit but i found a coffee cup under the dresser a few days ago growing some mold

    A popsicle stick makes a great bookmark. But eat the popsicle first. Don't make the same mistake I did.
